إقرأ هذا الخبر بالعربية W460

Israeli aircraft on Monday released scarlet heat balloons over Lebanon's regional waters, in the first such violation in around a year.

"Israeli warplanes dropped more than 30 scarlet heat balloons between Naqoura and Tyre within two hours," state-run National News Agency reported.

Meanwhile, LBCI television said Israeli warplanes fired "five flare bombs over the sea off Tyre's coast."

Earlier on Monday, the Lebanese army issued statements about a series of violations of Lebanese airspace by Israeli jets.

Israel has escalated its flights over Lebanon in recent weeks.

Making plans to attack our country, now it's practice time but later it will be for real.

thats exactly the problem in Lebanon. Every one wants the christians to hate the Israelis and the christians hate them because they do violate Lebanon frequently.
But did you ever accept the fact Syria was also an enemy?? never.
as long as you dont, i will never make peace with you mowaten. its scary how you seriously say "syria never bombed lebanon like israel". are the christians not as important as the shiaa bombed by israel??

I am talking about the repeated violations of Lebanese sovereignty over the last 2 years, you know like the ones President Suleiman wants the faux minister to send the letter of complaint to the syrian foreign ministry.

Mowaten, I don't post much but this is a ridiculous comment. Syrian bombed the hell out of Zahle. They cut off water, put us under siege, no food. Motar, air raids, bombs, sniper. Many women and children were killed. This was over a two year period. This was not the only area. We will not allow this to be forgotten. We did not attack Syria from Zahle. They did it because of a strong Christian resistance there. Many people in my family died, my friends were sniped at 6 years old. You wonder why so many Lebanese are against the Assad regime. Its because we remember.

sorry mowaten--I care about ALL violations of our sovereignty, not selective ones like yourself and the so called resistance. I am not a hypocrite like yourself.

Israel always wanted peace but you wanted to destroy them because yo could not accept the reality of a Jewish state. It is not Israel's fault that G-d helped them destroy their enemies. Just accept Israel and its right to live and then there will be peace.
